Question: My baby was born premature nearly 32 weeks on 11 august 2018. Now he will be 4 months so can i start him oats n milk ??

No solid foods before 6 months of baby age.it is not advisable as their digestive system is weak and cannot digest solids.post 6 months you can slowly introduce pureed or semi solid food to your baby.4 months is too small.
